Inquisit Language Reference
The items attribute defines the items contained in the stimulus set.
or/ items = ("item", "item", "item",... )
|itemname||The name of an item element defined elsewhere in the script.|
|item||A quoted string representing an actual item.|
Items can be defined either by specifying the name of an <item element>, or by directly by listing each item in the set.
Different types of stimulus elements use the items in difference ways. If the stimulus is a text element, items represent the actual text items to be presented. If the stimulus is a picture, sound, or video, then the items are the names of the files containing the relevant media. If the stimulus is a port element, the items are strings of 0's and 1's representing 8-bit TTL signals. Characters in an item are specified in descending bit order, with the leftmost 0 or 1 value representing the highest bit and the rightmost value representing the lowest order bit. See How to Present TTL Signals Through the Parallel Port for more details.

/ items = presidentitems
The following defines image items:
